Cloduera 5.15 to Version 6


Any idea when Clusters running 5.15 will be able to upgrade to version 6?  I always liked to be on the latest version, but appears to have back fired in this instance as now can't upgrade.

What's the reason for this?

According to the below link, If you have CDH 5.7 and above then you can upgrade an existing cluster to Cloudera 6. But this is for enterprise edison , are you trying it from enterprise edison?

The following pages shows supported upgrades:


As you have identified, it is not supported to upgrade from 5.15x to 6.0.x  This is due to the way we had to maintain fixes and features in branches of 5 and 6.

Don't worry, though, as you only need to wait a while longer for 6.1 at which point you can upgrade to 6.1.  Only 5.15.x to 6.0.x is blocked.


We are targeting 6.1 to be released by the end of the year, but that is a rough estimate.


For now, you can keep up with the latest 5.x release and start reading the C6 upgrade documentation.  There are some major changes all over CDH and for Solr the upgrade path is complex, so it is a good idea to start planning if you are using most of the CDH products.
